I'm going to keep this short as I'm in the middle of The Job Search.
I'm pretty sure I'll get a job with the couple from church. They own a lending group right here in our city. I imagine the pay won't be great at first, but it's a great opportunity to get my foot in the door to learn the business. However, I won't know about this particular job until Monday, and in the meantime, I'm still looking at other options.
1) Hospital. There are several openings at our local hospital that fit within my time frame and would probably pay well and also offer opportunities for advancement.
2) I re-applied at the same temp agencies I'd applied at several months ago, but this time with the more realistic day-shift availability. Neither agency sounded too promising, though. So, we'll see. At least my name's back on the list again.
3) I check the employment ads daily. You gotta love technology. I don't even need to get the paper. All I have to do is go on line to see what is available.
On the home front, the kids seem to be adjusting to school pretty well. I was especially worried about Kade, because his teacher didn't seem that nice, but he says he's doing okay. He complained about doing his homework yesterday because he wanted to go out and play so badly, but it only took maybe 45 minutes to get it all done. Each night he lays out his clothes for the next day without even being told. And he's out the door the next morning for that all-important bus ride!
Once everyone's home, though, it is BUSY. Pencils are being sharpened, backpacks are getting slapped onto the table, snacks are being consumed in alarming quantity.
I try to get all of the elementary kids to finish their homework before Kathleen and Keva come home, so I can give all of my attention to Kathleen. Keva gets to sit at the TV and watch Cyber Chase while Kody runs around with his tennis ball in his mouth begging for someone to play with him. The older kids, thankfully, don't need too much of my help anymore. Kristofer doesn't have a lot of homework anyway, much to the consternation of Keri Lynn and Kathleen. However, that is going to change next semester. He's got a HUGE load. I don't think he's going to be very happy.
